West Mountain completes major milestone for operations in China
CALGARY, ALBERTA, Sep 26, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — West Mountain Capital Corp. (“the Company” or “WMT”) CA:WMT 0.00% today announced that it duly qualified and registered Shanghai Phase Separation Environmental Technology Co. Ltd. (“Shanghai PS2”) as its wholly-owned foreign enterprise (“WOFE”). Shanghai PS2 operates from its headquarters in Shanghai.
While going through the rigorous process of establishing a Chinese subsidiary, West Mountain had conducted its operations in China through its Canadian subsidiary, Phase Separation Solutions Inc.,. As a foreign company we were presented challenges that limited our ability to pursue certain opportunities. The WOFE radically simplifies operations and provide us with a significant advantage over our foreign-based competitors in pursuing and executing contracts, hiring local staff, obtaining local financing, among others.
“This has been a lengthy process and a major investment by our Company but one that was necessary to establish a firm foundation for our future in China,” said Paul Antle, President and CEO. “With the establishment of our WOFE in Shanghai we have put the Chinese market on notice that we are a serious contender and there to stay. I am pleased to say that Chinese companies have quickly taken notice.”
